On Stage Highlights + 14 Occasions Catalog Sneak Peeks

I attended the Stampin' Up! On Stage Live event in Salt Lake City this past weekend. Demonstrators attending this event were the first to see the brand new Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-bration brochure.

For two and a half days, we enjoyed new product demonstrations, business presentations, make and takes, and tons of displays with awesome samples! Here are some photos from my trip:
My upline Kim Peck brought bright green hats for our team to wear. It makes me so much easier to find each other in a crowd of over 2,000 demonstrators! This is a pic of me and Mom (Susan La Croix) at the opening General Session.
 Our On Stage bag and notebook. (Photo credit: Jessica Ingold) Inside our bag was a new stamp set and a gorgeous Stampin' Up! mug!
Mom, me, and Jessica at CentreStage Live -- an event for Silver Elite and above demonstrators. We had a wonderful plated dinner followed by comedian Jason Hewlett. He was hilarious! The perfect way to end the evening!
Did you see my post about the new Stamparatus? I am so excited about this brand new stamp positioning tool! It will change the way you craft! Learn More

I'm also excited about a new coloring medium called Brusho Crystal Color. It's watercolor ink crystals that you mix with water to create gorgeous watercolor background and bright vibrant watercolor images. Here's a card using the Brusho Crystal Color. I can't wait to order it! (Demonstrators can order everything from the Occasions Catalog starting December 1st! The catalog will launch for customers in January.)

In addition to all the classes, demonstrations, and business presentations, we also had all of the year-end recognition and awards since the Stampin' Up! year just ended September 30. 
I was recognized on stage with my teammates (above from left) Mary Ellen Stites, Meg Loven, Kim Peck, and Mom (Susan La Croix) for "Level 2" Sales & Recruiting Annual Achievement, Earning the Alaska Incentive Trip, and reaching two milestones: my $500,000 career sales milestone and 15th anniversary as a demonstrator!
Back home, Stampin' Up! posted an extended list of top achievers. I was thrilled to be #29 out of 30,103 demonstrators in the United States for Personal Sales and #62 Overall! Thank you to all of my customers and my Ju-bilant Stampers team for helping me earn this distinction!

As On Stage attendees, we got a pre-order a selection of new products -- AND we earned free Sale-a-bration gifts with our purchase! One of my favorite Sale-a-bration gifts is the Party Pandas stamp set.

We packed a lot into three days! One of my favorite moments was one of the last -- watching Shelli Gardner (co-founder of Stampin' Up!) with her daughter Sara Douglass (current CEO of Stampin' Up!) demonstrate and share projects together was a riot! I love watching them banter!

I didn't take nearly enough photos, but thankfully my friends thought to! One of the best parts of attending a Stampin' Up! event is spending time with my team and my friends from all over the country (and the world) who share the same passion as I do for papercrafting!  I treasure our time together and look forward to On Stage in April! Not a demonstrator yet? What are you waiting for? Join the fun! Learn More

Live in the United States? I would love to be your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator!
